Hi Dana,

Indeed we thought about implementing the XQSE and JSONiq. The main
reason why we eventually focused on other things was that we are a
small team, and we thought it would take us too much time to implement
the features. Back then, together with Matthias Brantner, we designed
some XQuery Modules which were then implemented in both Zorba and
BaseX. I have always been impressed by the well-thought design and the
variety of features of Zorba.

I sent you a private mail to some of the other questions, simply
because I don't want to restart the interesting yet very verbose
discussion that flooded the list a short while ago. However, it would
be interesting to have such a debate on JavaScript mailing lists and
find out why they do or do not use JSONiq. Various programming
languages had an amateurish start (this surely did not apply to
JSONiq), but still have become huge without anyone advertising them.
